The blurry background is due to small aperture in use (lower F number) which resulted in narrower depth of field.
Was reading your post, then it struck me tat this is precisely wats happening when i shoot with macro mode. The depth of field is much nearer, allowing me to focus on close objects. So i should be able to see the 'blurry background' effect on my macro shots. Went back to see n the effect is really there! Like in the shooter pic below, the plate and utensils behind the cup are indeed blurry in comparison to the contents of the shooter. Well, its not really tat obvious, but its there. So kewl

Twtan, thanks for the revelation. Hmmm, does this mean tat for cameras which you can adjust the aperture, you can achieve this 'blurry backgrd' even with subjects tat are further away, n not just with close subjects shot under macro mode?
